Austin – SBCA’s Happy Hour: New Report on Wastewater in the Hill Country
April 8, 2019 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm
Join Save Barton Creek Association, Wimberley Valley Watershed Association, and the Meadows Center for Water and the Environment as we release a new report on preferred wastewater systems for the Texas Hill Country!
Experts will speak on the sewage pollution crisis in the Hill Country: What problems are arising? What is the Texas Legislature doing on this issue? What promising developments are on the horizon?
We hope to see all our friends who love our crystal clear creeks and springs.
The report by Susan Parten, PE, provides guidance on a variety of cost-effective wastewater solutions for the Texas Hill Country. “Preferred Wastewater Systems for the Texas Hill Country and Over the Edwards Aquifer: Economic and Environmental Considerations” presents key considerations for choosing individual on-site, clustered and non-discharging centralized wastewater systems. The report describes evolving best practices to convert what is presently an economic waste and an ecological threat into an asset for the environment and people.
This report is intended as a tool to help engineers, developers and decision-makers choose the appropriate scale of system. It also provides preferred system attributes and case studies for each of the systems.
